Falcons | Mike Smith talks up Steven Jackson's receiving

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith called RB Steven Jackson a "big strong running back that catches the ball extremely well. ... He's a guy who had close to 100 catches in a season, so he's a guy that we can use in the passing game."

Fantasy Tip: This isn't exactly news, but it affirms the Falcons' plan to use S-Jax as often as possible. The St. Louis Rams' offense didn't carry much potency last year, but Jackson's new squad should help boost his touchdown total along with his receptions in Dirk Koetter's offense. Jacquizz Rodgers is merely a handcuff. Even though he'll turn 30 soon, Jackson still has some juice left, and this offense will help keep his floor as a low-end RB1.
